Facial Thread Veins

Facial thread veins (spider veins) and red spots are thin dilated capillaries.

The vast majority of facial thread veins are bright red, very thin and, when you push on them with a finger, they blanch, filling almost immediately afterwards.

Removal of these veins can be achieved by electrolysis/diathermy. When treated to the right depth, the heat produced by the electric current destroys the blood vessel. This then heals by fibrosis ensuring the blood vessel will never reappear. Although other facial thread veins can form, the treated vessel destroyed by heat will never re-open again.

It is virtually a painless procedure with no anaesthetic required.

In trained hands Advanced Electrolysis is a highly effective treatment. It is almost impossible to permanently scar the skin using the correct procedure and is usually the least expensive way to treat this condition.

Dr Simon Lam is fully qualified to carry out this procedure and is happy to offer a free consultation before any treatment is planned.

Patient Testimonials

Erika has been wonderful with my young daughter who accidentally chipped a piece off her front adult tooth. Erika was patient and caring, she took the extra time to explain the procedure and allowed for any questions and took it at a pace that suited my daughter.....the result is amazing, we are all pleased and most of all my daughter is now excited about going to the dentist!

I saw an advert for a free smile evaluation and having been so unhappy with my teeth for years, decided to go and have it done (not really thinking I would actually go through with any treatment) but as soon as I met Erika and she showed me what she could do with my smile I was instantly on board! You need to be committed to the regular check ups and make sure you wear the aligners but once you get going it becomes a habit and my treatment time flew by. All the staff are friendly and helpful and Erika was always on hand for any advice I needed.The results are amazing and so worth the money...I wish I'd had it done years ago!

Erika as always fantastic. I had a very nervous son who could be difficult to reason with. This has changed totally. My son will now happily go and see Erika and tell her the problem. A small filling today and wow Erika was fab, her nurse was great and my son has totally changed and sat on the chair and let her do all the treatment with no worries. Big thumbs up from us!! Thank you 😁😁

Mary White

Went in for my normal 6 month check up today,Erica thoroughly cleaned and checked as usual and to my joy and surprise she asked if I would like to have my chip filled in on my front tooth. Without hesitating off she went. Thank you so much Erica, I honestly can't thank you enough. My wedding photos will look great now.....well at least my teeth will be!
